KTM 500 EXC-F Six Days 2018:Six Days, six wins

Utsalgspris kr129


KTM has ruled off-road for decades. The special edition Six Days models celebrate this success with special performance upgrades and top-of-the-line components. In 2017 the ISDE (International Six Days of Enduro) will be held in Brive-la-Gaillarde, France and the KTM model line-up has been suitably equipped to handle anything the muddy and rocky terrain can throw at it.



KTM R&D, KISKA Design and the factory racers had their say

in shaping the plastics with one goal: complete harmony

between rider and bike. Perfect ergonomics and contact

points provide maximum comfort in movement on the EXC-F.

The I-beam structures of the front and rear fenders guarantee

maximum stability and a low weight thanks to well thought-out

construction and mounting. They also stay cleaner for longer. Clever

brake hose routing on the front number plate prevents wear and tear.



KTM engineers know how to handle handlebars. This tapered unit,

made of high-strength aluminum by NEKEN, features a throttle

assembly with a robust aluminum body and easy free-play

adjustment. An ODI volcanized grip sits on the right, while

on the left side of the bar a comfortable ODI lock-on grip

requires no glue or wire to secure it. You can retrofit two interchangeable

throttle cams, for different response characteristics to suit

your specific needs. With the standard map select switch you can

select an alternative power characteristic and activate the unique

traction control, a major benefit under wet riding conditions.



Tailored to meet the needs of the world’s fastest backsides, this

durable seat offers great comfort, helping you master the

most challenging terrain all day long.



The WP Xplor 48 upside-down fork is a split fork developed by WP

in close collaboration with KTM. It is fitted with a spring on both

sides but features separated functions for each fork leg:

compression damping is fitted on the left side, while rebound is on

the right. The forks can easily be adjusted for compression and

rebound with the twist of a dial on the top of the forks. New outer

fork tubes and a reworked setting make for more sensitivity, improved

damping behavior and a reduced weight. In addition, a sealed

hydro-stop guarantees excellent resistance to bottoming-out.

Due to high-quality materials and a state-of-the-art production process,

the new WP Xplor 48 fork – with approx. 300mm of travel – has outstanding

response and damping characteristics. A comfortable preload

adjuster is Sixdays standard and allows for a simple spring preload

setting in three steps without tools (standard, +3mm, +6mm).


The state-of-the-art Keihin engine management system with

electronic fuel injection features a 42mm throttle body. Thanks to its

unique injector position, the engine’s response gives a whole new

meaning to the word ‘instantaneous’. Separate circuits for

cold-starting and idle make on-site adjustments easy. Push the throttle

back when the engine is warmed up and the cold start mode disengages.



The high-tech, lightweight chrome-moly steel frame has a knack for

easy handling, outlandish rideability, precise cornering and

excellent stability. You can also count on high torsional rigidity

and low longitudinal stiffness. This results in better absorption

of the energy created from the front and rear suspension sucking

up jumps and bumps. In short: more comfort and less rider

fatigue. Laterally attached, lightweight engine head stays

(the connection between cylinder head and frame) contribute

to a reduced vibration level. Two threaded inserts in the

lower cradle tubes allow for safe fixation of an optional skid plate.

The engineers could pull off all that, while making their frame a big

fat kilogram lighter than that of the lightest competitor on the market.

In addition, it is easier to maintain, easier to work on and

supplies more space for the tank and other components. The bike

also features an extra-light subframe made of stable aluminum

profiles, which tiptoes the scales at less than 900g.



All Sixdays models are fitted with high-end CNC machined triple

clamps anodized in orange and an offset of 22mm, ensuring

a solid grip of the fork and precise handling. The handlebar

is adjustable forwards and backwards over 4 positions, so

the bike will fit you like your favorite gloves.



You can’t brake any harder, better, faster or stronger. High-tech Brembo

calipers are combined with lightweight Wave brake discs. The

steel-flex front brake hose has efficient protection and there’s

an integrated channel for the speedometer cable. First you

outrun them, then you outbrake them.
